Anger Management

ANGER MANAGEMENT COUNSELING

Everyone feels angry at times, but an inability to control our anger can impact every facet of our lives. Anger management problems can destroy families, ruin reputations and cause lasting damage to our relationships with others. At the same time, our anger can leave us feeling out of control, helpless and depressed.

Anger problems can be fueled by our life experiences, and may result from underlying feelings of pain or inadequacy. We may use anger to try to assert control over others or to hide unpleasant feelings of rejection, guilt or shame. While our feelings might be understandable, our hot-headed behavior still may be inappropriate.

Anger warning signs:
  • Relationship Problems – Has your anger caused strained or broken relationships with friends and loved ones? Are others frightened by your rage? Have any of your relationships become abusive?

  • Community Problems – Has your career suffered because of your inability to control your temper? Have you faced legal or financial problems as a result of your anger? Has your “road rage” ever put you in a risky situation?

  • Personal Image and Health – Do your angry outbursts leave you feeling anxious, depressed or out of control? Has your self-image suffered because you are embarrassed by your behavior? Do your anger issues cause headaches or other health problems?

When you allow anger to rule your life, you are the one who pays the price. Fortunately, anger management counseling can help you to lead a happier life by teaching you how to control your reactions to everyday problems. Through counseling, you can learn how to identify the cues that trigger your anger and you can learn new ways of thinking.
